Sherlock visits Ferry Meadows

Have your say

Famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr Watson have a mysterious new case to investigate and need Peterborough’s help to solve the mystery.

The delightful duo will be performing for the first time at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough, as they present their acclaimed production of ‘The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes’ against the back drop of the lakes and meadows of the 500 acre country park on July 17.

Their mysterious new case summons the pair to a nunnery deep in the English countryside, where Holmes and his companion join the search for the most elusive treasure known to mankind.

With a missing novice, a death in the convent and some very suspicious nuns, Holmes’ newest case promises to be his most terrifying and challenging yet.

Chapterhouse Theatre Company, in its 16th year of touring open-air theatre across the UK, is looking forward to putting on this fascinating production at Ferry Meadows, creating an enjoyable and memorable experience for any audience.

The show provides a wonderful opportunity for friends and family to sit back and enjoy a chilled summer evening, with your own picnic whilst watching a wonderfully traditional evening of entertainment.

The show, being held on July 17, will start at 7pm with gates opening at 6pm. Tickets are available from the Ferry Meadows Visitor Centre or online at

Adults are £14, students and children £10, families (two adults and two children) £42.
